Marine Nature Conservation in Europe 2006

Location: Stralsund (Germany)
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2006-05-08    
End Date: 2006-05-12

Event Description:
The Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN has the pleasure to announce its upcoming conference entitled Marine Nature Conservation in Europe 2006. This conference will take place in cooperation with and in the premises of the German Oceanographic Museum (DMM) in Stralsund from 8 – 12 May 2006. It will deal specifically with the current status of marine nature conservation policies, conservation science, and the management of human activities in European and ad-jacent waters. A first conference of this kind, but concentrating on German marine nature conservation issues, took place in the German Oceanographic Museum in 2004 and was a great success.

The conference is financed by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Con-servation and Nuclear Safety. It will be conducted in English. There will be three days of invited presentations dedicated to (I) marine nature conservation policies, (II) con-servation science, and (III) the management of human activities, respectively, fol-lowed by a day of different excursions in the surroundings. This conference seeks to cover a wide range of actual and current topics in marine nature conservation involv-ing a full range of interested participants such as policy makers, conservation man-agers, scientists and non-governmental organisations. We will invite speakers mainly from across Europe, as well as some from outside of Europe. The number of partici-pants will be limited to 250 persons.

The German Oceanographic Museum is located in the picturesque centre of Stral-sund, a medieval Hanseatic and world heritage city on the Baltic coast. It is situated in north-eastern Germany, in the middle of Europe, some 300 km north of Berlin and east of Hamburg (approx. 3 hours train ride). Frequent trains connect these cities with Stralsund. There are also major ferry connections to Rostock and to Sass-nitz/Mukran (Rügen), if you are travelling from Trelleborg (Sweden), Gedser (Den-mark), Klaipeda (Lithuania) or St. Petersburg (Russia).

A detailed programme in a second announcement will be published in Janu-ary/February 2006. Please feel free to contact Stefan Bräger ( for more Information.
